What would really depend on if we get snow is blocking in the arctic, particularly Greenland and riding out in the west to funnel artic cold air down south.
You mean like what happened in early 2010? I hope so. That weather pattern actually brought snow to parts of southern GA too. The town where I live in had it's first real snow (2" or more) in over 20 years.

Hopefully some snow. Less days of work, the better.

Hey, at least we will get a chance to see if there is any truth to global warming and with any luck , we will get some here in January.....but.....I......Digress.........on a brighter note, we will be able to demonstrate to New Yorkers how to prepare for impending, inclement weather. Apparently they struggle with this...

Yes, please educate us on how to prepare for impending, inclement weather. I'm interested in the dichotomy between preparing for one of the worst storms to hit the northeast in recorded history, versus a storm that may dump 3" of snow, or what we refer to as, "a chance of flurries."

Yeah, Sandy was a storm that we usually get a couple of per year in the South...that's what he was talking about. We are experienced in how to prepare for those, much as people in the Northeast know how to prepare for snow. It's not all that different, but be indignant if you feel like it.

I'm well aware about summertime thunderstorms in Atlanta. I spent the first couple decades of my life there. We get thunderstorms during the summer here frequently that I would say on the average are slightly less powerful than ones in Atlanta, but generally on par with them.

The rain wasn't the issue with Sandy. It was the recorded 94 mile per hour wind gusts and the storm surge. Until Atlanta is surrounded by water, a storm could never produce effects there like what we got hit with up here.

To those wishing for snow: I am going to put on my Walls coveralls, face mask, and Hitek boots. Calmly hunt you down and blast you all with snow balls! Yellow snowballs! You want snow? Go to Snow Mountain! Purchase your ticket in advance.
















Tongue in cheek people. I wouldn't blast you with a yellow snowball.

One of the nice things about telecommuting is that I don't have to drive to work in order to work if there's snowstorm.

You are lucky that you like your job so much. I wouldn't say that I like my job. It's more so tolerable.
